Guest Book Highlights

February 11, 2018 "I never knew or met Peter Gent. But loved the way he wrote. Just now I found out he had passed away. Hes an author I always seeked to see if he had a new novel out. There wasnt many but the few were very entertaining. Sad there will never be anymore...." - Steve Gustafson (Copperton, UT)
December 10, 2016 "Pete blessed me by agreeing to allow me to do a story about him for a magazine I was working for at the time and then by speaking at my request at a sports business conference I helped organize. I miss his wit and insight. It still inspires my current blog ("Juice This") spoofing the NFL, at Thanks, Pete. Thanks. RIP. --Howard Schlossberg" - Howard Schlossberg (Schaumburg, IL)
February 01, 2016 "Mr. Gent was an inspiration to me as he was to many as I read his novels in junior high; they helped me through a particularly rough period. In each of his books I have read, I have seen a character that I absolutely relate to, and often multiple characters. His career was a bit before my time as I was born a year after North Dallas Forty came out. Nevertheless, I believe we share many of the same perspectives on life. He was one of the factors that motivated me to become a writer. He will be sadly missed. I regret that I never got the chance to meet him as I always wanted, but his works speak loud enough for me." - M Bryant (Sacramento, CA)
December 12, 2015 "I was very sad when I read of Peter's passing. North Dallas Forty is my favorite book of all time, and I have read a lot of books. I am currently reading The Last Magic Summer. I am also trying to write something myself, and his work has been a big influence on me. I consider him to have been a huge and somewhat underrated talent." - Bob McNeil (Halifax, NS)
March 29, 2014 "Please accept my sincere condolences on the death of your dear love one. “And no resident will say: I am sick…” Isa 33:24. This is a promise God has made known in his word. Perhaps one day in the divine future you or I may see again those fallen from our lives due to a sickness or illness that led to an untimely death. Prayers go out to the surviving family and friends may the God of comfort continue to bless you and yours."
